Skinsense Reviews: The hydrating range that puts the sense back into skincare – Skinsense: The Hydrating Range. I used to be one of those pompous narcissists who felt that skincare was all about anti-aging. Now, however, I know better. Moisture isn’t a big deal. My skin is already well-hydrated. The more antioxidants, the better for me, sweetie. When you apply antioxidants to dry skin, what happens?
Honestly, if a cream didn’t have retinol, vitamin C, and the like in abundance, I wouldn’t give it a second glance. “Useless junk!” I’d scream with glee. A couple of years have passed. I’m a little more experienced (I turned 36 last month) and currently reside in London, which is one of Europe’s oldest cities. When it’s cold and windy outside, my skin loses all of its elasticity and hydration. Dryness, flakiness, and redness will soon appear. Although you’ve aged, your appearance hasn’t changed at all.
I like how the cream keeps my skin soft and nourished throughout the day. During the winter, I expect to need to supplement this with a hyaluronic acid serum or the Intense Concentrate (discussed further below). Hydrant Intense Concentrate from Skinsense by Abi Cleeve is a powerful moisturizer. While still lighter than a night cream, Hydrant Intense Concentrate by Skinsense by Abi Cleeve has a lightweight, lotion-like feel that quickly sinks into the skin. Sweet almond oil is the star of the show here.
Hydration, it turns out, is the cornerstone of a successful skin care regimen. If you don’t have that, everything else is in jeopardy. Ugh. Skinsense by Abi Cleeve’s moisturizing skincare collection has rekindled my love for such products. To lay a solid foundation for the rest of your skincare regimen, they emphasize the importance of starting with a hydrating cleanser.
Hydrant Day Cream by Skinsense by Abi Cleeve
Acquiring a deeper understanding of your own skin This is my least favorite product in the Skinsense by Abi Cleeve line, but only because it does not work well with my current sunscreen (La Roche Posay Anthelios Dermo-Kids 50+). The pill when I put them together. Bummer! In order to avoid pilling, you’ll need to select a sunscreen that works well with it or wait for at least 10 minutes between applications.
Hydrant Day Creme uses synthetic emollients like Stearyl Alcohol and Dicaprylyl Carbonate to moisturize skin instead of expensive natural oils and butter or low-cost silicones. There is no denying that they are not sexy, but they are effective. Water loss is prevented while the skin is softened, all without leaving behind an oily residue. Hydration magnets like glycerin and hyaluronic acid help keep the skin moisturized for longer by attracting moisture from the air. Because of this, the cream is extremely nourishing. If you were only looking at the texture, you wouldn’t think that. Instantly sinking in because of its low weight.
A barrier on the skin created by sweet almond oil slows down water loss. Water can’t get out of the room. Staying indoors and moisturizing your skin is crucial. In addition, it may help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and halt the aging process. That’s a good thing. Moisture magnets are also present in this product to ensure that your skin receives an extra dosage of hydration throughout the day (or night). There’s a new member of the family here: Myristyl Myristate. I usually get pimples from this product, but since I started using the Intense Concentrate, I haven’t had one.
Shows that it’s not just what you use, but how it interacts with the other ingredients that determine whether or not a product is good for your skin. In the evening, I apply Hydrant Intense Concentrate first, followed by Night Cream. In the mornings, if your skin is dry and in need of extra moisture, you can use it. I don’t because I prefer not to overextend my sun protection attire. I don’t mind having a large shoe collection, but when it comes to skincare, I prefer to keep things simple.
Either way, it’s a serious hydration booster. Using a lot of moisturizing products has made my skin softer, more supple, and younger-looking than it actually is. Skinsense by Abi Cleeve has a lot of products, however, this one is the best if you have dry skin.
Hydrant Night Cream by Skinsense by Abi Cleeve
Acquiring a deeper understanding of your own skin For those looking for something more heavy-duty, the Hydrant Night Cream is your best option. If it’s hefty enough, then so be it. Because it’s such a light cream, it sinks right in and keeps your skin nourished all night long. Similar to its siblings, the night cream uses a combination of moisture magnets, emollients, and oils to attract water into the skin and seal it all in. My nighttime skincare routine generally includes the Intense Concentrate before I apply this product. I think they complement each other quite well.
The Hydrant Face Mask by Skinsense by Abi Cleeve
The Hydrant Face Mask by Skinsense by Abi Cleeve is my personal favorite from the line. Even if it has alcohol in it, it’s fine. I’m not sure how I feel about drinking. Some people find it drying and unpleasant. In addition, it allows you to cram a lot of moisturizing ingredients into a smaller amount of product without creating an overly thick and oily mess on your skin. The lightweight gel texture, on the other hand, is incredibly moisturizing. I follow the directions and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing and applying the rest of my skincare routine, which includes retinol.
When I get up in the morning, my skin feels soft and puffed out. However, the Hydrant range does an excellent job moisturizing the skin, but the mask adds a little extra oomph. You can tell it’s been taken care of. Skin, but far superior. Before a big event like a wedding or a photoshoot, I prefer to utilize it to make sure there aren’t any unpleasant surprises. Flaky areas of skin are the last thing I’d like to deal with while applying foundation. Duh!

A tingling or, worse, the stinging sensation isn’t what you’re feeling. It doesn’t hurt or bother me in the least. It’s just… well, the mask tickles me a little. How do I put it? I’m not sure. Nevertheless, my skin looks so fantastic afterward that I don’t mind. Well, I suppose everything has its first time.
